Its ... sub-optimal.
Really difficult to find old posts without spending 10-15 minutes wading through dozens of unnecessary pages and clicks now that we've lost the ability to narrow down searches.
Im sure it makes the back end easier to deal with, (and im far from resistant to change!) which i can understand.
This feels regressive for regular visitors though.
Q: Is there any way to bring the advanced search back OR// expand the new search function to include at least a couple of additional fields to help (ie posters name, subforum or date parameters)
